Our regular feature highlighting close passes caught on camera from around the country – today it’s Fife

Today's video in our Near Miss of the Day series shows a driver making a close pass on a group of cyclists on a road where there was plenty of room to overtake - then for good measure beeped the horn at the riders and gave them the finger.

Garry, the road.cc reader who filmed it, told us it took place at 0720 on 27 June.

He said: "It happened just outside Dunfermline to the north, where me and my mate were heading out for a gentle 100 miler.

"The road where it happened was quiet as it was early and is really wide, so easy to navigate past us.

"We were two abreast but as you can see, I'm not even halfway out in the lane so there is loads of room.

"The driver came up quite quickly and then went past with about 6 inches of room.

"Judging by the video, he had no intentions of slowing.

"We obviously showed our concern after he'd passed and he then stuck his finger out the window and sounded his horn as if it was our fault."

Over the years road.cc has reported on literally hundreds of close passes and near misses involving badly driven vehicles from every corner of the country – so many, in fact, that we’ve decided to turn the phenomenon into a regular feature on the site. One day hopefully we will run out of close passes and near misses to report on, but until that happy day arrives, Near Miss of the Day will keep rolling on.

If you’ve caught on camera a close encounter of the uncomfortable kind with another road user that you’d like to share with the wider cycling community please send it to us at info [at] road.cc or send us a message via the road.cc Facebook page.

If the video is on YouTube, please send us a link, if not we can add any footage you supply to our YouTube channel as an unlisted video (so it won't show up on searches).

Please also let us know whether you contacted the police and if so what their reaction was, as well as the reaction of the vehicle operator if it was a bus, lorry or van with company markings etc.
